Last night Mr Wybert Reeve had the pleasure of showing his, cinematographs views to a large and appreciative, audience,'' who were not always content* "with one look; at the scenes represented, but loudly demanded their repetition, which was obligingly acceded to. A large proportion of the pictures shown were different to those exhibited on the previous evenings. Those received with special favor were the arrival of the Cologne express, baby's dinner, London street dancers, village* sack race, etc.; and. the old favorites were again welcomed heartily. Mr Reeve, besides making an ideal lecturer, interpolated two fine elocutionary efforts—'The Thin Red Line' and «Hanging a Picture'—the merits of which, were fully recognised. Further variety was added to the programme by Miss Hope Nation's pongs r The' Two Grenadiers' and 'Out on the Deep'—each of which suited the lady's contralto voice. The incidental music was played with skill by Mrs Gallaugher, and altogether a visit to the show is well repaid.
